What to expect in 2019 at the Laramie Range Epic
The Laramie Range Enduro originated in 1998 with a start/finish line located within the City of Laramie, Wyoming and climbed 1300 feet out of the Laramie Valley and into the stunning landscape that graces our back yard - The Pole Mountain Trail System. Twenty one years later, this race has transformed to maintain a traditional approach to a cross country race, while adapting with the evolution of cross country culture. Our first change came when we changed the title to the Laramie Enduro, and Rich Vincent took over the reigns and made the race a Wyoming premier event. Eventually as terminology changed the Laramie Endruo evolved again into the Enduro Epic, and today we are proud to represent ourselves as the Laramie Range Epic. The 2019 race crew is excited to bring you the same excellence and professionalism you have come to expect when racing in Laradise, the home of the Laramie Range Epic.
2019 - The 2019 course will essentially be the same course as the 2018 course with racers having two Race Options:
One and Done - A one lap, 31 mile loop (4,184 ft of climbing/descending all over 7500 ft in elevation) winding through the Pole Mountain trail system. Racers will be supported by the famous Laramie Range Epic Volunteers and sponsors who have made this race as fun and approachable as it is challenging and competitive.
The Laramie Range Epic - The same course with a second lap. This is type two fun. It is going to hurt, but in a really good way. Same great support on both laps, and the beer at the end of the race has been on ice longer.
The Terrain - Sitting in the hills just East of Laramie, Wyoming are the trails that make this area so special. Happy Jack, Blair and Vedauwoo - this course explore Pole Mountain’s fast forested single track trails and roads
NO highway crossings or pavement - all dirt, all day
Aid stations every 10 miles with fresh food, water, performance nutrients, cowbells and the Laramie Range Epic’s legendary volunteers!
The same fantastic base camp finish-line after-party with real food and real refreshments served by real people. Live music, awards ceremony, and more!
The Sponsors - Without our sponsors this would not be possible. Our first obligation is to the community that supports our adventure. We encourage racers and spectators to come to Laramie Friday nigh before the race, sign in, and patron our sponsors so that we can count on their continued support. Sponsor List
